Once upon a time, possibly a decade back, our Forget Cricket secton was the forum I came whenever a world event happened, the discussions were passionate yet informative and some members would cross a line that would have been ban-worthy a few years later ....
Anyways, balance is hard to maintain, and I respect the moderators wish to avoid a Cricinfo type forum ...
